Makeup for Oblong Faces like Beyonce Knowles’: Balance Your Face with Blush

When you have a long face, “using a lot of blush is fantastic for shortening your face shape, since it cuts the center of your face in half horizontally,” says Babaian. Adding a sparkly eye and glossy lip helps balance both halves, says Nemes.

Here’s how to get Beyonce Knowles’ rosy glow:

1. Apply a cream blush along the top ridge of your cheekbones, and blend it in using horizontal strokes. This ensures there isn’t too much length in your face, says Babaian.

2. Eyes: A sparkly, shimmery eyeshadow on your lids will draw the attention away from the edges of your face and straight to your eyes.

3. Lips: Apply a soft neutral-colored lipstick to your lips, and layer it with clear gloss on top. The gloss will provide another focal point when people look at your face.
